WHAT TO EXPECT FROM TGLE 2019

The Good Life Experience is about connecting our guests with things that really matter, not just for one long, idyllic weekend in Wales, but for ever. We offer a weekend long interactive guide to living The Good Life

We call it a festival of happiness. Why? Because our guests connect with new skills, new ideas, new music and food, new brands and friends and books and hobbies; new things that will enrich their lives. And because we are the friendliest, most intimate festival anyone will ever encounter. Unlike most festivals we are committed to remaining small so that our guests can interact with speakers and demonstrators in intimate and meaningful ways; The Good Life Experience is more salon than arena show.

The location is amongst the most beautiful anywhere in Britain. Everything takes place in or around two castles in Wales in historic listed parkland and gardens, private nature reserve, in the keep of a 1400s castle and a 1700s drawing room. That makes people happy not least of all because this is the only weekend of the year that this site is open to the public. You can run wild or you can knuckle down and learn a new skill.

Unlike any other festival we put equal emphasis on craft, outdoor activity, food, music and ideas. This is a festival of discovery but also of fun. As we always put it "days at The Good Life Experience are full of nurturing, learning and fun and the nights are one big, family-friendly party”.
